about drones is not that u.s. forces can kill people from the air using targeted so-called precision-guided missiles. u.s. forces have been killing people from the air for as long as we have had the capacity to put armed things in the air. what is novel about what our government is doing now in our day is not necessarily the technology. yes, we are using remote piloted aircraft versus traditionally piloted aircraft to launch these same missiles. but the type of aircraft, that is, the delivery system for the hellfire missile is not the new moral strategic legal thing that we are finding ourselves newly responsible for grappling with as citizens. it is not the technology by which u.s. forces are killing people which is knew in an important way. it's not the technology that's new. it is the circumstances. it is the circumstances of killing people away from where a war is being fought. if the u.s. was using a mix of helicopters and drones to fire hellfire missiles at insurgents who were fighting with u.s. troops in afghanistan right now, nobody would have a different ethical concern or a

's the higher end of walmart's previously issued guidance range. the world's largest retailer forecast, the u.s. key same-store sales to grow between 1% and 3%. last year's fourth quarter grew 1.5 year over year. but beyond financials, investors will look into possible investigations. there hasn't been a clear timeline as to when the investigation results will be released from the allegations that walmart issued millions of dollars in bribes to officials in mexico. if you remember, it was last quarter that walmart stated an s.e.c. filings that they have expanded those investigations beyond just mexico and to brazil, china and india. >> you know, this is going to be a fascinating story today. we heard about these leaked memos. walmart knocking it down saying things were taken out of context. i saw something overnight from the nrf, national retail federation where they said something like six out of ten americans say their savings and their budgeting has been somewhat or greatly impacted by the changes in the taxes that kicked in at the beginning of the year. >> and i think it's interesting becau

quester. certainly a reconciliation after the fact that the u.s. is spending so much more than it brings in. i think one of the interesting things, just around rates, bullard yesterday, for example, said that he expects 3% real growth this year. so 3% real growth and 2% inflation, that gets me to march like a 5% ten-year. we're nowhere close to that. lloyd blankfein was on ur yo showing saying investors, if there is some sort of ex oh dus into stocks, and that's becoming a story -- >> and lloyd has been talking about just the potential for a stock market boom, too. >> dean, the name of your firm is macro, right? >> yes. >> so you're used to looking macro? >> yes. >> but typically, three were four, five years ago, isn't your first thing that you talk about, you mentioned washington, the sequester, the debt ceiling, every single thing you mentioned was policymakers. has it always been like that or is this a different period for your firm? >> this is i think pretty new. >> so it's hard to avoid talking about those things, right? >> that you have to pay attention to central banks, of course,
